    The Gorganza's were in charge at Mantua for 400 years and have left their mark with an extraordinary palace complex. the outstanding feature is the extensive wall frescos and decorated ceilings.  more »

    On vacation in order to know the deep North, the Po Valley, Mantova offers unique masterpieces of Renaissance art. These include the Doge! Not to be missed on a par with other more famous sites and perhaps less striking!

    We had to hurry very to see the huge Palace because we had a fixed appointment for the camera degli Sposi at 13: 00, the latter please forget, is nothing compared to the Ducal Palace, with its vast rooms and ceilings.

  • Every place in this area is wonderful. I think Verona is such a beautiful district. This Palace and all the surrounding buildings was really beautiful
  • Frescoes inside is impressive. St George Castle next to it has monumental walls and moat. Parking around is difficult though.
  • If you go to Mantova, this is the first place you should go visit. It is very elegant and recommendable to visit. It costs around 10€ and you need about 2h to visit
  • Definitely worth the trip. €12 per person is expensive though
  • A fantastic place to historic cultural level, amazing frescoes and Renaissance air anywhere to visit if you are in Mantova
